Another Go-To Meal...

This is a true family favorite for all in our house! I found it forever ago at Real Mom Kitchen and it quickly became a go-to meal for us! This is a perfect recipe to use when you have no time to spend in the kitchen!
Enchilada Style Burritos

8 frozen prepared beef and bean burritos
2 Tbs butter
3 Tbs flour
1-1/4 cups water
1 can (8 oz.) tomato sauce
1-1/2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp beef bouillon granules
3/4 tsp ground cumin
2 cups (8 oz.) shredded Mexican Cheddar

Place frozen burritos in a greased 9x13-in. baking dish; set aside. In a saucepan, melt butter. Stir in flour until smooth; gradually stir in water. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Add the tomato sauce, chili powder, bouillon, cumin and salt. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes or until thickened. Pour over the burritos. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until heated through. Add any additional toppings that you desire.

This is a great quick meal idea!
My mother-in-law used to warm up these burritos and top them with chili, then she added some chopped lettuce, tomato and cheese to the top. It was one of her go to easy meals.

Mine too Katherine! :O)

Lynda, that sounds really good - I might have to do it like that next time I don't feel like making the sauce!

April, let me know how it goes!

I'm too lazy to make my own sauce but I'm sure premade enchilada sauce works just as well. These sounds really good!

Kathy said...

Monica, you sound as bad as me!!! ;) lol...

Wow, what a great way to dress up store bought burritos. That melted cheesy goodness on top has got my stomach growling!

Hi Kathy,
To make the glow stick figures we used necklace length glow sticks and did place tape on the glow sticks and pinned them to the kids using clear packing tape then taped down the stray parts. I am sure there are better ways but we had a blast. I think we used 5-6 glow sticks per kid. The best colors were the yellow and green for brightness. Oh it is best if the kids were a hoodie so that you can pin the circle to their hood and not their head! Robin
